RTS Wales Awards

RTS Student Television Awards

One of the most exciting aspects of television today is the way in which young people are always shaking things up with new ideas, scripts and fresh formats.  The Royal Television Society recognises this youthful enthusiasm in the annual Student Television Awards.

The deadline for returning an entry form for a 2016 Award was September 30th.  "The Awards are for student television work that shows outstanding visual and aural creativity, a mastery of craft skills, innovation, initiative, and storytelling."
Read More about the criteria (Word doc).  All entries are to be submitted via the RTS Online Awards Entry System.

RTS Wales Centre Student Television Awards

This year, the Wales Centre Regional Awards ceremony was held in conjunction with an Industry Day held at the ATRiuM, and the winners are automatically nominated for a UK-wide RTS award.
Past winners are listed on our Awards page.  We have provided links to those winning films which are available to view online.

Celtic Media Festival

In 2008, RTS Wales approached the Celtic Media Festival to extend the Society’s reach with students in the Celtic nations.  A competition was established, which saw the winners of the RTS student awards in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Republic, and Devon and Cornwall, compete for the RTS-CMF Student Awards.

RTS Wales Hall of Fame

On two occasions we have inducted some well-known Welsh stars into our Hall of Fame.  In 1999 they were Caryl Parry-Jones, Nicola Heywood Thomas and Vincent Kane, along with three international personalities who had their roots in Wales.  They were Swansea boy, Sir Harry Secombe, Sir Howard Stringer of the Sony Corporation, who was born in Cardiff, and Rolf Harris.
Then in 2004, in a gala evening on the 17th October, actress Sian Phillips presented a certificate to Pobol y Cwm, on the occasion of the series's 30th birthday.
